4ever summer

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 11.33.05 AM

Zebra and snake prints have always struck me as the more warm weather-friendly, but the truth is, nothing pops against white like a good leopard print, and frankly I just don’t feel right if I go more than six months without showing you a fresh batch. For reasons I can’t discern, most sleeveless leopard tops are chiffon and sheer, but this one is cotton and nicely opaque.

A Madewell store just opened up around the corner from my mom’s place about a month ago, and because this could spell big trouble for my wallet, I try to exercise serious self-control on my visits. So I passed on this shift dress recently, but not for any good reason: it’s just the kind of unrestrictive, comfortable and desperately cute piece I like best on the hottest days.

Silk tees are just a beat more elegant than their cotton counterparts, and I like the longer sleeves here.

If not leopard print sunglasses during the summer, then when?

You’ve got to play it really careful with leopard-print heels—things can get really trashy really fast, even if they’re fancy and designer. But these classic Soludos espadrilles are just good fun.

    the dress is impossibly cute. it’s in my shopping bag but i’m going to try to talk myself out of it, especially since my wallet suffered a contusion in the sale…

    All terrific choices. Love the shift dress, but, alas, I do not (at my age) like to show my knees.

      Most models are 5 or 6 inches taller than I am, so sometimes their knees show where mine would not. I love it when websites tell you the height of the model–it’s actually important info. On this one, I am assuming the measurement they give is for the back of the dress, not the front. So since it’s unclear whether my knees would show, and since returning stuff is annoying, I will have to pass, even though I love it. I have to add–I bought a Zero Maria Cornejo dress at Bird last week on sale. Black, v-neck, slip on. And I totally “get it” now. It is a perfect dress.

    Equipment can kiss my ass.
